i received my new book in the mail...and am taking their class in june...but couldn't wait another second to give something a try.
the book is so well done, clear, concise and of course...artisically gorgeous... "judy and stephanie" STYLE!
i went for the the caulking excercise judy wrote up...
i used an old book cover, spread on the caulk, inscripted my outlines for a face and some textures, having no idea how this would turn out. let it dry and went for my paints...
it was such a surprise all around...the caulking took the painting so BEAUTIFULLY, that i wanted to paint on it forever, it was marvelous! i actually liked my surprise 'TURN OUT', it was almost like painting backwards or with your eyes shut tight...extremely freeing and fun!
i shall attempt more with time :))!
right next door in one of the photos you can catch a glimpse of a little painted plaster gauze...it ain't over yet for experimentation!!!
